Top Level Categories
The Top Level Categories plugin allows you to remove the prefix before the URL to your category page. For example, instead of
http://fortes.com/category/work, I use
http://fortes.com/work for the address my "work" category. WordPress doesn't allow you to have a blank prefix for categories (they insert
category/ before the name), this plugin works around that restriction.
Latest Version: Top Level Categories 1.0.1
Older versions also available.
- Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
- That's it! :)
- Deactivate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu
- That's it!
Known Issues / Bugs
- This plugin will not work if you have a permalink structure like
%category%/%postname%-- there is currently no workaround
My links are broken when using `%postname` or `%category%/%postname%` as my permalink structure
This is a known issue, for which there is unfortunately no good workaround. If you add a suffix to your permalink structure (such as
.html) you can fix this issue. For example, try
%category%/%postname%.html -- I realize this is not ideal, but there is no good solution for this issue.
How do I automatically redirect people from the old category permalink?
Use the Permalink Redirect Plugin
I'm getting 404 errors when I click on my category link
First, make sure that you've followed the installation instructions -- you must manually update your permalink structure (in the 'Options' -> 'Permalinks' section of your admin). If that doesn't work, then let me know!
